[Poster Presentation] Automatic Language Identification Based on Posterior Probability on Articulatory Classes
Takumi Hirata, Kazuyuki Takagi (UEC) SP2014-125
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Extraction of features from input speech that are effective in distinguishing the language is a key issue for language identification system. We use posterior probabilities on articulatory classes as features for language identification. Posterior probability on each articulatory class is calculated by GMMs. Each GMM is trained with MFCC data of speech segments labeled with the phonemes or acoustic events that correspond to the articulatory class. The posterior probability values of the articulatory classes are concatenated to form an articulatory-feature-class-posterior-probability (AFCPP) vector at each analysis frame. These vectors are then quantized to yield VQ code sequence, which is used as the training data for a n-gram language model. Language identification is performed by selecting the n-gram model that yields the highest likelihood for the AFCPP vector sequence of the input utterance. Language identification experiment between Japanese and English by the present method showed identification rate of 97.1%.
